Dover, Tennessee—Celebrate National Park Week at Fort Donelson National Battlefield by becoming a Junior Ranger! Park staff will be leading short hikes, demonstrating how the Civil War cannons worked, and exploring the historic fort and earthworks.


Events will begin at 11 am on Saturday, April 23, 2011. Scout leaders, parents, and students are urged to meet the Ranger at the visitor center, and pick up their Junior Ranger booklets and activity sheets. There are no fees. Programs may be postponed in case of inclement weather.


The National Park Service preserves and interprets the site of the 1862 Battle of Fort Donelson, which includes the Civil War fort, earthworks, monuments, historic Dover Hotel, national cemetery, and historic and cultural resources at Fort Heiman, Kentucky.
